Guard T.J. Lang and tight end Michael Roberts, who both missed practice on Wednesday, were absent once again with the same injury. LeGarrette Blount, who sat out Wednesday with an illness, returned as a limited participant on Thursday.
Linebacker Eli Harold missed the second straight practice due to a not injury related reason. It is unsure when he will return to action.
Defensive lineman Da’Shawn Hand was downgraded from being a full participant on Wednesday to limited participation on Thursday as he picked up an ankle injury.
The Detroit Lions are currently a very banged up team with nine players currently listed with an injury—and three players missing practice due to an injury of some sort. Their opponent today, the Green Bay Packers, are a banged up team as well.
Green Bay’s top 3 receivers are all set to miss some time with injuries and quarterback Aaron Rodgers is still struggling with a knee injury he suffered in Week 1.
